The bounty hunter film, They Die By Dawn, is “set in 1890 with every single black actor in Hollywood, swagged out cowboy style,” says Jeymes Samuel, the frontman for the hip-hop collective the Bullits.

In the cast is top-shelf talent: Rosario Dawson, Idris Elba, Giancarlo Esposito and Michael K. Williams. The Spaghetti Western was shot at the Melody Ranch in Santa Clarita, California, where Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained is also being filmed.
